Quick...create a baby boy card

 Hi Stampers. How's your week so far? I'm using an IPad app to put some discipline in my life...you know, actually complete the daily "To Do" List. One of the things needing doing today, was a card for a neighbor who had a baby boy after having three girls. You can imagine just how welcome this little one is and how spoiled he will be. He's the baby by some 11 years.

The image is two stamps which required a bit of masking to get the bear atop the blocks. These images are in a Recollections Clear Stamp set called Bouncin' Baby Boy. It's my "go to" set for boy baby cards.  I used Nesties for the label and circles, some SU cs and retired dsp, pearls, ribbon, flax, buttons and Memento inks with copics. I definitely should have made that little bear a darker. It is somewhat darker IRL, but I'll work on him more next time.

Gotta run get some shut-eye for an early rise. I'm walking again and I have to bake a sour cream coffee cake in the AM for our final Bible Study until the fall.

Hugs & Blessings,
Erica
